1st Training School – Fundamentals of GNSS for ITS applications – COST Action TU1302

COST Action TU1302 “Satellite Positioning Performance Assessment for Road Transport” (SaPPART) brings together experts in Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and mobility to address the open issues and guarantee the success of the standardisation for underpinning certification initiatives. During its implementation a training school will be organized once per year.


The 1st 3-day training school will be held in Aveiro, Portugal on 9th – 11th May, 2016 and it will be divided in the following three topics:

  • Role of positioning in ITS

  • Fundamental of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) 

  • Differential GNSS, services and architecture


The registration process, which is consisted of two steps, is opened from end of 2015 until 15th March, 2016 and only 20 participants will have the chance to attend this training school. At the beginning each trainee needs to fill in the pre-registration form which is available here and then to create an account here  in order to add his/her bank details. While the participation in this training school is free of charge, the bank details are required in order the trainees to receive a grant which will cover most of the travel costs and accommodation.


Before their participation trainees are encouraged to:

  • Acquire basic knowledge in geomatics (geodetic references, coordinate systems). 

  • Follow some lessons of the MOOC “éléments de géomatique” (with subtitles in English). Next course will begin on Match 31st, 2016.
